Site Regulations

We expect all owners and their guests to accept that these site regulations are a set of sensible rules intended to maintain the high standards of The Bay whilst ensuring that everyone has fun without annoying distractions.

We would very much like all our owners and their guests to get to know our security staff on site as we want a safe and secure environment for one and all the family. There is no better way for our security staff to look after your interests than for they to know you and you to know them.

These Regulations relate to the whole of the site known as The Bay, Filey (including the Amenity Land for which residents will hold a licence) and shall be observed and performed by all tenants and their guests whilst they are on the site. These Regulations are made in accordance with the leases granted. Breach of these Regulations will be considered a breach of the tenant's covenants in the lease and any such breaches shall be dealt with accordingly.

1. The use of the following articles is not permitted, save in any areas that may be designated from time to time by the management company (and such phrase where used in these regulations shall mean Essential Vivendi Limited, their agents and successors):

1.1. Electronic / motorised toys

1.2. Remote control cars / aircraft - remote-controlled sailing boats are permitted on Low lake but not the other lakes.

1.3. Kites

1.4. Horses

1.5. Stereos, television and musical instruments.

1.6. Fireworks

2. Fishing is not permitted in any pond or lake other than Low Lake. Fishing in Low Lake is only permitted with the prior consent of the management company and this shall be obtained on a day by day basis (and for which there may be a charge).  These restrictions are aimed at preserving the ecology of the ponds (particularly a healthy and vibrant fish population).

3. All pets shall be kept under control at all times and, in the event that any pet is causing a nuisance, then the management company, in its sole discretion, may request that the pet is removed from the site. A maximum of 2 normal domestic pets are allowed per unit. All owners of dogs are required to clear away any fouling.

4. The speed limits on the site roads shall be observed at all times – this is currently set at a maximum of 20 mph though on certain minor roads a lesser speed is obviously necessary. Be sensible, think of others; we all want a calm relaxing atmosphere.

5. No washing shall be hung outside the units or out of the windows of the units.

6. No litter shall be deposited anywhere on the site, save in the expressly designated bin areas. Domestic waste from the units must be deposited in the bins within the allocated bin stores.

7. Nothing shall be done on the site or in each individual unit such as to cause a nuisance to other residents and guests. No excessive, noisy or disruptive behaviour shall be permitted on the site. The management company reserves the right to ask anyone in breach of this Regulation to leave the site immediately, in which case, no refund of any sums paid will be made.

8. The sale, use or distribution of illegal drugs and the provision of drug replacement therapies on site is strictly prohibited. For the avoidance of doubt this includes any locally commissioned NHS service, for the supervised consumption of methadone and/or buprenorphine. It is also prohibited to run any needle and/or syringe exchange programme.

9. All children and babies on the site shall be properly supervised at all times and especially when close to the lakes and ponds.

10. The appropriate security measures on the site shall be observed at all times, including access points being closed and/or locked behind guests where necessary.

11. Access between different areas on the site shall be by the designated roads and paths and areas of planting etc should not be disturbed. Motor bikes, quad bikes, 4 x 4s in particular must stay on the designated roads.

12. All vehicles must be parked in the designated parking areas. Boats on trailers must be parked in the designated area. No motor home, caravan or commercial vehicle shall be parked on the site without the prior written consent of the management.

13. Swimming in the ponds and/or lakes on the site is not permitted.

14. Patio furniture is permitted provided it is of wooden construction, of natural colour, and, if required, with a cream parasol. No toys, bicycles, push chairs or other attendant household goods are to be left outside the units overnight or when the property is vacant.

15. There is to be no personal planting of gardens outside individual units. If you need to indulge your green thumb please speak to the Head Gardener who is always looking for assistants.

16. There is to be no advertising signs or bill boards – including “for sale” and “to let” signs – anywhere on the site.

17. No ball games to be played near the units. We have acres of amenity land and we hope lots of people will play ball games – but they can be rowdy and annoying if you are not a part of them so, please, think of others and play well away from the units.

18. We do not permit any filming or photography in or around the swimming pools and changing areas.

19. Neither the management company, nor its servants or its agents, accept any liability for any personal injury, loss or damage which may be sustained by owners or their guests during their stay, except where it arises from the negligence of the company, its servants or agents.

20. Members of the Press or Media are not to be invited on to The Bay, Filey, without the express consent of the management company. You may not use photographs of our premises, facilities or members of staff without our written consent.

21. We reserve the right to ask for information about any owners or guests using The Bay, Filey, and to decline bookings for hen and stag parties and groups of individuals under the age of 21.

22. If, in our absolute discretion (which will be exercised reasonably) any owner or guest who is not suitable to continue their occupation at the Site because of unreasonable, aggressive or abusive behaviour, damage to the Site, danger or significant annoyance to others, or any other action which may bring the reputation of The Bay into disrepute, the party or parties involved may be asked to leave the Site with immediate effect.

23. All Owners must ensure that their guests understand and observe these rules which are, after all, intended to see that everyone has a great family experience at The Bay.

24. No unaccompanied children under 16 are allowed in the pool.

25. Not to use the name The Bay or any of the logos relating to the Site in connection with the Property, ether in marketing material of whatever kind, in connection with the letting of the Property or in the address of the Property.

By agreeing to the above Regulations for the duration of your stay at The Bay you and your party accept that any breach of the Regulations may result in the cancellation of your booking and removal from the Site without refund.

The management company reserves the right to change or amend these site regulations without prior notice in the interests of good estate and park management.
